“I am an aristocrat. I love liberty, I hate equality.”
– John Randolph of Roanoke
This quiet unassuming city has never been at the center of much of anything. Nearby Albany was the flash point of the Civil Rights Movement in this area. Martin Luther King, Jr. suffered a major setback there in 1961 and 1962.
Cuthbert though in many ways is at the absolute center of the core themes that characterize this website: (1) the Southern historical experience, (2) opposition to Black Run Amerika, (3) a peculiar strain of anti-liberal Southern conservatism, (4) and the tragic future awaiting White Americans as we approach impending minority status.
It is no exaggeration to say that the soil, the rhetoric, the traditions, the history, the culture, and the fate of the Black Belt – the cultural heartland of Dixie, the plantation belt that stretches from Maryland to Texas – is what has inspired this website … just as it inspired the rise of Confederate nationalism in the 1850s.
In this Southern backwater in the middle of nowhere lies the ruins of another American civilization that was based on radically different principles. The grave of “slave society” can be found in Randolph County, Georgia.
I often find myself mentally switching gears and describing horrific crimes in places like Philadelphia or Chicago as a product of “free society” which I am always implicitly contrasting with “slave society.” The Black Undertow is a product of “free society.”
This will seem strange to some of our readers. They associate the behavior of African-Americans in “free society” with intrinsic racial characteristics. The negro is nothing but a plague upon civilization in their eyes.
History shows us otherwise. African-Americans are a plague upon civilization in the social context of a multiracial integrated liberal democracy with a capitalist economic system moderated by the welfare state. They are a burden to society under a system in which they are relentlessly exalted and deified by the Yankee-Jewish ruling class.
In Black Run Amerika (BRA), the historical epoch which began in 1965 which we are now living through, African-Americans are put up on a pedestal above all other races. This explains much of their insolent behavior, their unwillingness to find gainful employment, and the chaos that they routinely cause in our cities.
Whites are subsidizing and tolerating this behavior. The lack of resistance on the part of Whites goes a long way towards explaining why the costs of criminality are soaring as one major metropolitan area after another is quietly abandoned to the insidious force that we call the Black Undertow.
What does this have to do with Cuthbert, Georgia? In Cuthbert, we can see a powerful and early demonstration of The Iron Law of Race Relations: Freedom and Equality, African-Americans, Civilization. Pick any two.
In “slave society,” White Southerners constructed their civilization in West Central Georgia around the plantation system. African-Americans were field laborers who picked cotton for their masters, but as slaves they were denied freedom and equality. The Black Undertow was non-existent because the free negro was non-existent.
As hard as it is to believe now, West Central Georgia used to be a prosperous place under “slave society.” The countryside was organized into plantations which along with their counterparts elsewhere in the Black Belt grew over half the cotton in the world. This used to be one of the richest parts of America.
The negro under “slave society” was an economic dynamo in West Central Georgia and the Mississippi Valley. Haiti used to be the richest and most productive colony in the entire world. Abolition transformed the richest colony in the world into the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. “Freedom and Equality” transformed West Central Georgia and the Mississippi Valley from among the richest areas in the United States to among the poorest ones.
In Randolph County (GA), the Jim Crow system (which restored some of the authoritarian elements of “slave society”) allowed a limited recovery to take place in Cuthbert. The small town never recovered its previous wealth, but the Black Undertow was marginalized and was denied full participation in the “free society” that was transplanted in the South during the Reconstruction era.
After BRA was created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, African-Americans were elevated to full citizenship in Randolph County (GA), and the result of MLK’s Dream in Cuthbert was that civilization plunged into inexorable decline.
A few statistics tell the tale:
(1) Randolph County (GA) is 61.8 percent African-American and Cuthbert is 74.2 percent African-American. The county and the town have been shedding population as younger Whites have been pushed out of the area by federal civil rights laws.
(2) In 2009, the New York Times interactive food stamp map showed that 33 percent of African-Americans in Randolph County (GA) were on the EBT card. The numbers of African-Americans on the EBT card there today must be in the 50 percent range.
(3) In the 2008 presidential election, Barack Hussein Obama won Randolph County with 58 percent of the vote. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 effectively meant the Africanization of Randolph County.
(4) The median household income in Randolph County is $16,400. 33.5 percent of the population is below the poverty line. In 2009 dollars, the average antebellum slave was worth $134,000 dollars.
(5) In Randolph-Clay High School, 43 percent of African-Americans failed 9th grade literature, 43 percent failed American literature, 100 percent failed geometry, 56 percent failed Mathematics I, 79 percent failed Mathematics II, 68 percent failed Biology, 94 percent failed United States History, 40 percent failed Physical Science and 66 percent failed Economics in the 2009-2010 school year.
In Randolph County (GA), “integration” meant that the White taxpayer supported school was handed over to the Black Undertow tax consumer, the federal government squandered millions of dollars to equalize per pupil spending, millions were dumped into the county through Head Start, and the result is that after 47 years of MLK’s Dream 100 percent of African-Americans failed geometry.
In order to escape the Black Undertow public school, White families have to pay taxes to support the public school, and then pay tuition to send their own children to private school where far less money will be spent on their own children. It is a total role reversal from Brown vs. Board of Education where the White children now go to the inferior school and the Black Undertow gets the nice school.
As for the families that can’t afford private school tuition, they can look at their collapsing property values and the decline of business activity in their area and the loss of jobs and the flight of their neighbors and the blighted neighborhoods that characterize the Africanization process and decide the time has come to abandon Cuthbert and Randolph County (GA). The alternative is to stick around and be forced into poverty by the federal government.
What does this mean?
It means that African-Americans are not the real problem in Randolph County (GA). On the contrary, the real problem is the way that Whites have been socialized to think about African-Americans.
We think that “freedom and equality” are a wonderful thing. We believe that “freedom and equality” are the source of our prosperity. We believe that “democracy” must be universally extended to every bipedal creature on earth and that the spread of “democracy” is synonymous with “progress.”
The implementation of these foolish liberal ideas in Randolph County (GA) by the federal government – starting with abolition, but continuing with forced integration – took a place that had previously been a wealth generating economic asset and one of the richest parts of the country and transformed it through sheer utopian leftist based fantasy thinking into a Black Undertow county that is sustained only by the threat of force and wealth redistribution.
As I drove through Cuthbert and Randolph County (GA) yesterday, it dawned on me that the Left’s dream of “equality” is being achieved here (see photo gallery), although not in the way that they prefer to imagine. If African-Americans cannot be raised to the White level through any means known to physical or social science, Whites can be degraded and lowered to the African-American level by force and theft at the hands of their own government.
In pursuit of the fantasy of “equality,” you can take a prosperous place based on liberty and aristocratic hierarchy like Cuthbert and Randolph County (GA), and transform it into an Africanized dump of decaying mansions and abandoned houses with a Black Undertow economy that can only support the ubiquitous dollar stores and fried chicken restaurants that we saw in Tuskegee.
Cuthbert and Randolph County (GA) are hardly just an isolated case that demonstrates the total failure of “free society” either. We have already seen how the much more symbolic Selma (Dallas County), Montgomery (Montgomery County), and Tuskegee (Macon County) in Alabama are illustrations of the same Africanization process.
The producers of Detropia would have us believe that Detroit and the industrial cities of the Michigan like Highland Park, Benton Harbor, Flint, and Pontiac failed because of the impact of deindustrialization, not because of the impact of the Black Undertow and the Civil Rights Movement.
In Cuthbert and Randolph County (GA) and elsewhere in the Alabama and Georgia Black Belt, we can see that the Black Undertow in “free society” produced the same levels of poverty and economic collapse in an agricultural area that was never industrialized. As with the Pittsburgh-Detroit comparison, there are rural counties in North Alabama and North Georgia that are racially homogeneous, but have not shared the tragic fate of the Black Belt counties.
The Left is so drunk on egalitarian ideology that DWL filmmakers come to West Central Georgia to make documentaries about Cuthbert and Randolph County that decry the days when the Black Undertow had to work for a living and when West Central Georgia wasn’t a posterchild for American poverty. They have made a movie which glorifies the life of a common criminal like Winfred Rembert and have recently showcased it at the Hampton Film Festival.
In a flash, the truth about “progressivism” is revealed: we are undermining and destroying the foundations of American civilization for purely ideological reasons. We are being marched off the economic cliff of world history by delusional fanatics who have lost touch with reality.
Unless the forward march of “freedom and equality” is stopped and rolled back and “civil rights” is disassociated with “progress,” every city and county in America will one day be as impoverished and blighted as Cuthbert and Randolph County (GA).
